She grew up in Washington DC, often thrifting with her grandmother.Her love of French culture and style began at the age of 7, when she was given two dollars to buy a toy in the local thrift shop, but opted for a stack of vintage French Vogue magazines instead. 

She has had an illustrious career and education in fashion design, and is considered an expert in luxury vintage, having consulted several companies on luxury resale, preloved consumer behavior and market trends.

On this week’s episode, we chat about her collection of vintage designer handbags, how the luxury fashion market has changed and what the future of luxury fashion looks like, and savviness around making a luxury purchase you’ll love forever.
